HELP ME CREATE MY PATCH!!

hay everyone im currently workin on a project for my university using max msp!

I hav no idea bout how to make my patch!!

Im using beer bottles to trigger samples! the way im doing this is that i Have a mic hooked up and wen i hit a beer bottle with a stick! i want that certain pitch of the hittin of the beer bottle to trigger a sample! each beer bottle wil have different ammount of water in it to give them all different pitches! now i need a patch which will first measure the pitch so i know wat pitch to assign to what sample! and secondly i need the patch to have a trigger that wen it recognizes the pitch it will recognize and trigger the sample it has been assigned too! so pretty much use the beer bottles as a drum kit! wen i tap a bottle the microphone will send a signal through max to trigger a sample!!

who can help me??

First thing you will need to do is go through
the first 10 or so tutorials. Once you do that
you can look at an object called fiddle~. It will
do the pitch detection of the bottles. Another option
would be bonk~. But definitely go through the tutorials
first, it seems like a lot of work, but in the long
run it will save you a lot of time.

3rd Party objects which could do this – - – - Bonk~ and fiddle~ or pitch~
Bonk is more suited to noisy sounds and is trainable, pitch~ and fiddle~ are
looking for clean pitches.

Do a search at maxobjects.com

if only the first ten tutorials would contain this one:

“punctuation beside exclamation and question marks, or: how not to end your sentence!!!!!”

Another word of advice: If the expectation of your
professor is that the project should be your own
work, you ought to remember that she or he probably
also reads this list…. :-)

Seriously – the tutorials first. Absolutely. And
fiddle~ and bonk~ is probably the only non-vanilla
stuff you’ll need.

#107122
Jun 18, 2007 at 5:07pm

speaking as a professor, let me answer for you in your language, my
man:

maybe you should read the tutorials! and the example patches!
because chances are yur teeecher is reading your list posting and
shaking his head! you should give it a try and just work at it! and
post the patch here if your reeely reely stumped! cause we are not so
down on doing yur homework 4 uuuuuuuu!

ok, serious answer here:

break it down. make a patch which acts as control (good numbers from
beer bottles) and a patch that acts as playback (samples played when
you provide a bang or #s.)

too hard still?

for pitch tracking, the easiest way to do it- which is still NOT
REEELY EEASY BUT WHUT GUD STUFF IN LIFE IZ? is a third party object
called fiddle~. google ‘fiddle msp’ and you’ll find it.

for sample playback, try sfplay~. for file picking, look at ubumenu
and the ‘autocomplete prefix’ thingy.

if this is not enough, go outside and drink. you’re never going to
pass. might as well go get loaded.

Joshua, your condescending tone is not necessary.
Simple advice or “do the tutorials” would suffice.
Of course we always want to encourage people to take
the initiative and not be lazy, but you should avoid
introducing negativity to the forum.

my condescending tone was accompanied by the only advice to the student which pointed him in a concrete direction besides ‘read the tutorials’ or ‘go get fiddle~.’ i gave him advice.

i do not retract my words at all. i made fun of him, yes, but i also gave him some pretty valuable advice: break down the task, use this object and this object.

we see this again and again: students posting panicked requests for others to write their patches. it should not be coddled. smack them upside the head for being such catastrophic dumbasses, then point them in the right direction. that’s my pedagogic philosophy right there, in a nutshell, when confronted with student activity like this (and i’ve seen it many times):

1) you’re a flipping dumbass
2) here’s how to fix that state of affairs if you really care
3) don’t bother me again if you don’t.

it’s worked for me for five years of teaching max. and my teaching ratings are consistently high.

Actually, if you look at the original posting, it would
appear that the assignment itself is quite well broken
down into its component parts if you parse the original
sentences. That would, I think, be a great way to approach
the problem – decide which objects are right for which
tasks.

#107127

I agree that it’s enormously frustrating for a teacher to see students
take this tack. My personal favorite is the shoddily-constructed final
project that’s practically copied from my in-class files accompanied by
a note more or less of the construction: “It was hard. I tried. Oh
well.” Two out of three ain’t bad…

Some points for those of us who teach Max that might be useful: (or
mere pontifications…)

- It’s important that we let our students know the appropriate manner
to use the forum. Directing students to the “How to Ask Questions the
Smart Way” article is a good first step towards making sure that their
questions get answered.
- Let your students know that you are a member of the forum and see
the posts. Cheating online is the same as cheating with classmates and
is subject to the institution’s academic honor code which can often be
severe.
- I think it’s also important that students be reminded that if they’re
struggling, they should talk to their instructor as soon as possible,
as he/she will be able to address both their question as well as some
larger conceptual or programming issues that are causing trouble.
There’s definitely no substitute to watching someone work so you can
see where the chain breaks down, and the further they fall behind, the
less I can do about it.

Also, can anyone recommend a very, very simple online introduction to
programmatic problem-solving? I think learning how to break down
problems into smaller ones is really important, and it’d be nice if
someone has come up with an elegant way to teach this already.

I am shameless in harping on this during the Max beginner-only
workshops, and I am told that some number of my students have
found it useful:

Almost every single Max problem breaks down into three bits:

a. The Max code that does the work you want in the end will
expect some kind of message that tells it what to do. You
need to know what that message IS.

b. At some point, there’s something someplace in your
patch that is spitting out or generating control data.
A video camera, a MIDI keyboard, your computer keyboard,
a little Max applet that calculates a Navier-Stokes
equation, whatever. You need to understand what form that
output takes. Is it a stream of numbers? Is is a bunch of
lists? Is it data from a serial port? Does it come from a
bunch of places? One of the things that you need to know
has to do with what those messages are, and how Max does
what it does. Read the Overview chapter in the Fundamentals
manual. Read “How MSP Works” and the Audio I/O chapter in
the MSP tutorial. Ditto the “What is a matrix?” and opening
tutorials in Jitter. If you don’t know that stuff, you’ll be
making all kinds of mistakes all the time you can avoid
with a little effort.

c. Finally, the question for you and every other schlub in
the Max world is: “How to I take the messages from the
start end of the chain [camera/keyboard] I am getting
and put them in a form that the Max objects at the end of
my patch chain will understand?” Not only is that THE THING
THAT EVERYONE DOES ALL THE TIME, what you wind up with as
a result will, in time, become part of another chain of
Max things that will have you asking questions a., b., and
c., all over again.

#107129
Jun 18, 2007 at 9:15pm

I don’t think that the question is about how to solve problems in
Max, but rather strategies for how one looks at an aesthetic problem
and turns it into a soluble computer problem. How to turn an idea
into a question, and how to answer a question logically.

So, how to identify what the parts of the problem are, and what kinds
of mechanisms exist for dealing with them, presuming general
computer, but non-programmer, knowledge.

I would love to have a document like this to give to my students, as
well. It’s the most challenging part of teaching Max to creative
people, IMHO.

finding the pitch estimator patch and sample playing patches were easy i knew how to do that already!
My main issue is linkin both up so wen the assigned pitch is played, max and sfplay recognises it and triggers the sample assigned to the pitch! thats what i mainly needed help with!
any ideas people??

> thanks for the ppl who helped and f**k all the ppl who were rude!!!

It would be good to read the tutorials. You will find objects that
look for specific values and trigger actions based on that. There’s
lots and lots of ways to do this, for instance. Also, check out the
Max object thesaurus in the documentation. It’s a good way of finding
objects without having to guess. But again, do the Max tutorials 1-20.
The answers are there.

You’ll probably notice that fiddle~ isn’t outputting a round number.
For example, 71.05 and 70.95 will probably sound like the same pitch
(C#). Here, you’ll need to round the value so that the values snap to
pitches, rather than microtones. That way instead of having to look
for hundreds of continuous values you can look for a few discrete
values.

There are several ways to do that kind of thing. I think some
serious time with the tutorials – in particular, learning
how to route and store and match data – will do what you
need. In particular, setting up the pitch detection portion
of the patch to work with data in a *range* is a good idea,
I think. Similarly, data storage objects like table or coll
are useful for mapping incoming data to choose other data.

> thanks for the ppl who helped and f**k all the ppl who were rude!!!

For some people, asking everyone in the world to do
your class assignment for you would be seen as rude.
Almost everyone here has directed to you to some portion
of your solution. F-bombing the list is a great way to
assure that your source of help dries up. That choice is
and remains your own, of course.

This whole “stick and beer bottle” thing reminds me that the REAL godlike work’s already been done, sans Max patch: first on a rather rare Ocora release from the 1980s called “Musiques Urbaines du Kinshasa”, and – more recently and at popular prices – on the magnificent Crammed Discs release “Congotronics.”

http://www.crammed.be/craworld/crw27/press/press.htm

When I heard the Congotronics release, I was stunned, since I thought I was the only radio person in existence who still played the old Ocora disc [which has only two really long pieces on it]. But the real gobsmacker is that one of the bands on that old Ocora disc is the SAME bunch – Konono No. 1., twenty-odd years later and still making that joyful fuzzed-out likembe noise.

I know there’s not a Max patch in sight, but if you don’t know this disc, go find it. It’s wonderful.

(Oh – there’s a second Congotronics release, too – with DVD footage. I prefer the first, but your mileage may vary….)

I found that setting up a seperate group (google group or alternative) is a
very succesful way of getting the students to help each other. It also give
the teacher a good view of the communication process outside class (read as
“evidence of communication”). The braver more experienced join the Max list
but they also are keen to share with less technically equipped. I also use
this to mail directly to them problem solving patches etc etc, but it
creates a good internal learning culture and is special to them.

“The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends Is the Highest Form of Art.”
–Tom Marioni

In this case, I think there are two questions, one about hardware and
one about software. The first thing I would look at (IMHO) is what sort
of hardware are you using? Are you just grabbing the whole mess from a
single mic? Are you gonna go buy a MIDI drum brain and a bunch of
piezos? Are you gonna use a multichannel audio interface and a bunch of
microphones? And, of course, what sort of beer are we talking about,
and will you be sharing it with others? Each of these hardware choices
will require a different sort of software solution.

Good luck with your studies.

You guys remember a few months back when some dude posted “Ill pay 300 dollars to make my patch”

Sometimes it suprises me.

mostly not though.

Anyways, my two cents. If your planning to do the multi input route Its gonna be expensive to have that many mics and a milti input soundcard.. or are you planning on one mic and the different pitches will just be the triggers?

Hi dudes,
Interesting discussion. Forgive me for being slightly OT, but I couldn’t help but notice the high percentage of college professors that frequent this list, so maybe one of them might be able to tell me: What the devil is an F-Bomb, Greg?? Do I have to read the tutorials again to find out? I’ve done all of them, and all I found was a load of stuff about message passing and DSP but no mention of F-bombs. Has anybody written any F-bomb externals they could share with me? Or a perhaps a Pluggo VST that randomly spits out F-bombs in response to my crazed midi glove gesticulations?
Also, what’s ‘f**k’? It’s not in the dictionary, I’ve never heard it used in conversation either. It looks like ‘fuck’, only the ‘u’ and the ‘c’ that go between the ‘f’ and the ‘k’ have been replaced by two asterisks. I thought at first that route_dmb@hotmail.com might have really meant to say ‘fuck’, but then I remembered that the people on the Max forum are much too polite to use such a crude and base word as ‘fuck’ and would doubtless pour righteous scorn on the pleb who was ignorant enough to sully the forum with such an impious word. Indeed, if words such as ‘fuck’ are to be tolerated at all, it should only be in the context of the sort of inane discussions that are presumably taking place as we speak in some kind of Garage Band forum, and definitely not here on a list populated by polite and sophisticated people who would never use words like ‘fuck’, not even in jest or sandwiched between quotation marks that help educated people distinguish imported street slang from proper language.

> Hi dudes,
> Interesting discussion. Forgive me for being slightly OT, but I couldn’t help but notice the high percentage of college professors that frequent this list, so maybe one of them might be able to tell me: What the devil is an F-Bomb, Greg?? Do I have to read the tutorials again to find out? I’ve done all of them, and all I found was a load of stuff about message passing and DSP but no mention of F-bombs. Has anybody written any F-bomb externals they could share with me? Or a perhaps a Pluggo VST that randomly spits out F-bombs in response to my crazed midi glove gesticulations?
> Also, what’s ‘f**k’? It’s not in the dictionary, I’ve never heard it used in conversation either. It looks like ‘fuck’, only the ‘u’ and the ‘c’ that go between the ‘f’ and the ‘k’ have been replaced by two asterisks. I thought at first that route_dmb@hotmail.com might have really meant to say ‘fuck’, but then I remembered that the people on the Max forum are much too polite to use such a crude and base word as ‘fuck’ and would doubtless pour righteous scorn on the pleb who was ignorant enough to sully the forum with such an impious word. Indeed, if words such as ‘fuck’ are to be tolerated at all, it should only be in the context of the sort of inane discussions that are presumably taking place as we speak in some kind of Garage Band forum, and definitely not here on a list populated by polite and sophisticated people who would never use words like ‘fuck’, not even in jest or sandwiched between quotation marks that help educated people distinguish imported street slang from proper language.

“Piezos are really cheap for example. Combined with an Arduino board
it won’t cost more than 50 euros or so. This would make things quite
easy.’

I was going to reccomend that till I realized it was even more technical then the route he was planning… and if hes having trouble using bonk and sfplay then an arduno would be even more challenging.

http://www.cycling74.com/cgi-bin/searchsite.pl?SearchText=fuck

only 40 results, so no need to worry about our hygiene.

my favorite post is #38:

“bah, fuck it, I don’t see where my zip went anywhere!”

83 results if you use the forum’s search mechanism:

http://www.cycling74.com/forums/index.php?srch=fuck&btn_submit=Search&field=all&forum_limiter=&search_logic=AND&sort_order=DESC&author=

We truncate the site search’s forum results to 40 because at the time,
it was a pain in the ass to merge the search results from the various
tech we use to power our site, especially on the forum side. One day I
will revisit the site search and make it more useful.

Personally, my favorite is the first result on the third page of the
forum results (from the list in 2001):

“fuck sysex nevermind … i give up”

A more common sentiment was certainly never expressed.

My apologies for the noise.

cheers

That will sound definitely better than beer, but there is always a risk
of getting drunk while setting up that piece…

That is not noise at all. Words of pure wisdom. If only all HW devs had
the good sense to pay attention -
Beautiful and relatively new boxes like the DSI Evolver and the Korg
PadKontrol still need it, for some Godforsaken reason…
